To get the Ebony Blade, you must complete “Dragon Rising,” in which you investigate the Dragon Attack at the Western Watchtower outside Whiterun. Once you’re done with the Dragon Rising quest, visit the Bannered Mare. Have a conversation with Hilda and follow the next steps of the quest.

The objective is to visit Dragonsearch and investigate the Whispering Lady situation. Eventually, you will land at the Whispering Lady’s place, and inside, you will find the Ebony Blade.
